Each virtual fair is a free, one-day event, and you can attend as often as you would like. Parents are invited, too. Watch, learn, and get your questions answered about academics, athletics, diversity, study abroad, and other topics.

Additionally, the University of Miami (UM) is officially less than one week away from hosting “Preview the U!” “Preview the U” is a half-day, virtual event, that provides future applicants with everything they need to know about the university.

The event will be taking place on Saturday Oct. 10 12pm to 5pm ET. Registration is available through their Website.

During this virtual college fair, you can attend information sessions about your academic interests, hear from their financial aid advisors, further understand the admission process, and virtually tour the campus.

Another option is to sign up to the virtual college visit at Immaculata-La Salle High School. On Friday Oct. 16 1:30pm, University of Miami (UM) will be personally virtually visiting our school during F Block.
